Abe says Trump agrees North Korea missile launch a 'serious threat'

6 April 2017

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Thursday that he and U.S. President Donald Trump agreed North Korea's latest ballistic missile launch was "a dangerous provocation and a serious threat." Trump has repeatedly said China must do more to curb North Korea's nuclear and missile development. After the 35-minute telephone call with Trump, Abe said that he was watching to see how China would respond to Pyongyang after President Xi Jinping meets with Trump.
